Day 10 on our way to Firenze

We started our day by walking down to the beach one more time. I sat there with my eyes closed listening to the waves. I tried to take in the sound and smell so that I would remember it for a long time. And then we were on our way again to catch the ferry to take us off this beautiful island. It was a beautiful day and it was nice to feel the breeze on the ferry and enjoy the wonderful views. I couldn’t stop taking pictures of sailing boats passing us and the details on the deck of the ferry.

We took a train to Florence, which took us through more of the stunning Tuscan landscape. I fell in love with the city pretty much in the first 5 minutes of being there. The city lies on the River Arno and is the cradle of the Renaissance, the city of Michelangelo’s David and Botticelli’s Birth of Venus.

We spent the first night in Florence watching the World cup on an outdoor screen in a small piazza and spending time in the bustling Piazza della Signoria. The piazza was filled with people, live music and incredible sculptures. The atmosphere was absolutely breathtaking.

Make sure to come back for more pictures of Florence. Here are a few.

Ciao!
